Article of the Week: Article 28
This week we are looking at Article 28 – the right to education. As teachers we know how important this right is for children, particularly when education for children in the UK is harder to access.
Like last week, this set will contain activities for primary and secondary, a reflection and an extension exercise. Activities are easy to carry out with the minimum of equipment – most only need a pencil and paper. All previous weeks’ packs are available online. https://www.unicef.org.uk/rights-respecting-schools/resources/teaching-resources/guidance-assemblies-lessons/article-of-the-week/
Wishing you all the best,
Ms Swales held assembly today to talk about her visit to our partner school in Zimbabwe. It was really interesting to hear about life for children in Zimbabwe.
Article 28: All children have the right to education
Thank you everyone who donated money for non uniform day on the last day before half term. We raised £258.31 which will go to The British Heart Foundation.
We recently carried out a vote to find our new Head Boy and Girl. Student council discussed gender neutral roles and it was voted in favour having gender specific roles. Staff and pupils voted after each candidate stood up in assembly to explain why they felt they would be good in the role. Everyone did fantastically well. Well don’t to everyone who put their name forward and congratulations to our new head pupils.
Today, pupils were surveying school meals. They wanted to find out what the most popular meals are, what meals pupils don’t like and asked for ideas of what pupils would like to see on the menu in future. The results were the collated and will be given to the kitchen staff as part of an ongoing revamp to our school dinner menu.
